Kane County offers the CodeRED® Emergency Telephone Notification System. The system allows County officials to telephone targeted areas or the entire County if an emergency requires immediate action such as a boil water order, missing child alert or evacuation notice. CodeRED® is capable of dialing 50,000 phone numbers per hour and delivers a recorded message.
To sign up for CodeRED alerts, Visit the Kane County Emergency Preparedness website http://www.kcoem.org/Pages/preparedness.aspx, and click on the Code Red icon under the "Ready" image. Registering your contact information is especially important if you have an unlisted number, no landline, a VOIP or mobile number or TDD/TTY requirements.
